Alabama Awarded The Tony Martell Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award

Last night, legendary country music group Alabama was awarded the Tony Martell Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award at the T.J. Martell Foundation’s 11th Annual Nashville Honors Gala.
Brad Paisley was on-hand to pay tribute to Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen, performing a medley of some of their hit songs, including “My Home’s in Alabama,” “Dixieland Delight,” and “Mountain Music.” Charlie Daniels followed, taking the stage to present the band with the esteemed honor.
“We have been fortunate to have won over 280 industry awards in our 50 years of recording and touring, but the Tony Martell Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award may be the most special award we have ever gotten,” says Owen. “Anything we as a group can do to help find a cure for cancer is very important to me, Teddy and Jeff. We appreciate the Nashville music industry, Brad Paisley and Charlie Daniels for making our night extra special.”
Monday night’s event, held at the Omni Hotel in Nashville, raised nearly half a million dollars for the T.J. Martell Foundation. Additional honorees included Kings of Leon, Sally Williams, Dr. Kathryn Edwards and Sylvia and Al Ganier.
The Nashville Honors Gala is one of the T.J. Martell Foundation’s premier events that pays tribute to outstanding community leaders and presents special musical performances with heartwarming presentations that celebrate the evening’s honorees. In addition to the performances, there was a live and silent auction with proceeds benefitting cancer research.
